Wooster Takes on the Volcano

July 19th, 2010

We just returned from our trip to the volcano and are too tired to give the full details right now, but here are a few pictures from our trip. Meagen promises to write a future blog post on Eyjafjallajokull.

I can't believe Meagen forgot our inflatable raft. How was I ever supposed to touch Vatnajokull?

They were still getting ash at our campsite!

Eyjafjallajokull! It was incredible! I wanted to touch this one too but our bus was leaving.

So much ash on the glacier (and in my shoes)!

A view of the flood path from the top of the mountain we hiked. An excursion bus drove us through the flood plain since our tiny car would probably have just floated away.

Meagen and I at the top of the mountain with ominous Eyjafjallajokull in the background. We were standing on a slope...she's not really that short.

Right before getting back on the bus we ran into Wooster alumni Lisa Beam and Josh Schaffer returning from a three day hike! Seems like a very small world sometimes.
